This job is the biggest I’ve ever had in TC [the Army Transportation Corps]. If people in the field don’t get their beans, bullets, and beer it’s my fault for not providing the transport, and only way I can get it in is by ship to seaport or by airlift or paradrop inland. When you’re planning for a force as big as the Vietnamese Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines plus all the US, Korean, Chinese [Taiwanese], Australians, Thailand, New Zealand, Central Intelligence Agency, US Operations Mission, US Information Service, and the Embassy, it gets to be a big task. All roads and railroads are cut by VC. I am at a high enough headquarters to see the big picture this time.
